The lure of ego: Who is the leader of the Republican Party?

What in the world has the Republican party become? today on the news sites I see one story repeated over and over as though it is as normal as sunshine in Los Angeles.

It seems Rush Limbaugh, the well known comedian and self-ordained spiritual leader of all that is truly American has been persuaded to forgive the (elected only due to the will of his party rather than his stunning intellect and wisdom a la Rush{tm}) chairman of the Republican party for daring to speak of the the Sacred Rushness in less than glowing terms.

After several groveling apologies that amounted to saying that his thoughts were not his own and he spoke differently than he believed the Mighty Rush is now “All Good” with the contrite elected official.

Now that this pesky politician has been banished to the back rooms to make deals in private to further Almighty Rush’s goals (Complete humiliation for the American people under the Obama administration so they will finally listen to HIM) the country can go back to the patriotic task of shutting down their minds and dittoing the thoughts of Our Master and Living God of Anal Hypocrisy, Herr Fuhrer in His Own Mind, Limbaugh the Infallible.

If any of this strikes the reader as a touch sarcastic then I will gladly plead guilty. How is it that an explosion of indignity has not overwhelmed the “conservative” audience of Mr. Limbaugh? Limbaugh has never had to run anything, his job is to entertainingly complain about things he has no clue how to accomplish himself. He can freely ask this pol or that why they don’t “just do this” or “just do that” without ever having DONE any such thing. As far as I can see about the only thing the Most Holy Limbaugh has accomplished for his party was to cripple McCain’s campaign. And why did Rush do this? For the same reason he has snapped the chain of his audience at the leader of his party. Ego. Specifically the Ego belonging to a man named Rush Limbaugh. McCain was not the man Limbaugh had anointed and therefore Limbaugh refused to close ranks other than symbolically in order to deny this hated deviant the election. Why was Steele taken up with such rage and vigor by Limbaugh? He said, lets see, here is the quote from the CNN article this morning:

“Steele’s original remarks came from an interview on CNN’s “D.L. Hughley Breaks the News,” which was taped Thursday and aired Saturday. They came as Democrats, including White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel, have tried to paint Limbaugh — who has said he wants to see the Obama administration “fail” — as the effective head of the opposition party.

Steele rejected the idea, saying, “I’m the de facto leader of the Republican Party.”

“Rush Limbaugh is an entertainer. Rush Limbaugh’s whole thing is entertainment,” Steele told CNN. “Yes, it is incendiary. Yes, it is ugly.” ”

Here we have it in black and white, Steele dared to deny that a paid entertainer, a media whore, a talking head elected by no one but himself is not the TRUE head of the party. All you so called “republicans” out there ask yourself something. By the way Steele jumped to heel, isn’t he right? Hasn’t the Republican party, in it’s lust for the warmth of group think allowed an ego of Hitlerian, nay Stalinesque proportions to hijack the ideology of a democratic institution?

In Rush’s mind he was never guilty of the sin of “illegal drug use” because his lawyers prevented him from being convicted. His decades of opposition to even the CONCEPT of rehabilitation for drug users rendered his own doctor shopping and elephantine oxycontin habit the depths of hypocrisy given that he has never moderated his stance since his own outing as a pill popping druggie.

If Master Rush had gone public after his own ordeal and admitted that treatment and support were the key, not persecution and jail he could look in the mirror and call himself an honest man. Sadly, that is not the case. Rush’s titanic ego was unable to admit that he had erred in either public policy or private “mistakes”.

I have an idea, let us have a dedicated conservative town somewhere in America volunteer to allow Their Holy Father to be their mayor for one year. I would even go so far as to allow him to alter the very constitution of America in this one little town of volunteers. After the year is done we will send in the national guard and expose the Hitlerian nightmare that will have resulted. That is assuming the townspeople do not revolt and lynch him before the year is up once they realize the Jim Jones quality of Master Rush’s ego.

Any party that allows a comedian to declare himself it’s titular head and PROVE IT should quietly disband and fade into the dustbin of history.

Maybe the Libertarians can have a go at being the 2nd party. God knows that the Republicans days are numbered. And don’t think I see this as a good thing. Without a strong, REAL conservative voice in government we are just as screwed as a nation as if we had no Liberals at all. Anyway you look at things the Rush Phenomena is NOT a good thing for America.

And as a final note, Mr. Limbaugh’s famous attitude that he would rather see America fail than succeed under leadership with which he disagrees is surely as close to treason free speach can get. Can the Repulicans who flock to his show connect the dots on that attitude? IT means Rush would rather see economic collapse, chaos, starvation, riots and civil war than have a leader he disagees with be right. OR even have A right solution for a situation that might admit to more than one solution. If the solution is not the Rush Solution it must be made to fail.

That is the same crime the Communists and Leftists in the State Department where accused of: wanting to destroy the country in order to impose their own ideology. Rush, Thomas Jefferson would spit in your tea and George Washington would hold the cup for him for your brazen attempt to usurp democracy with the hot air from your….um, lungs!!
